What Gig's Have You Been To?

Couldn't see a thread dedicated to live music.

I went to see The Specials last night at Rock City,Nottingham.  Good gig small venue (about 2500).  Decent atmosphere.  Was almost a very short concert with Mr Hall threatening to walk off after bottles were thrown.  It seems some people just can't help acting like idiots.  Some well dressed folks about too.  I'm always blown away when I see a women skinheads, a male skinhead so what?  But a woman skinhead that takes guts.

  • Excellent night of music and dancing at The Hope & Anchor, Islington. 

    The Rare Soul Quintet

    The Sha La La’s - Darron Robinson always sings with a smile on his face and it transfers to the crowd.

    Graham Day and the boys do the biz.

  • The redoubtable  Mr James Hunter ans his Six at The Blues Kitchen, Brixton last night.  Good sprinkling of new numbers which bodes well for future releases. 

    • I always find it astonishing how effortlessly he floats through his set...

  • Looking forward to this one this summer 

  • Secret Affair and Squire show in Newcastle. 6 pics

    • I was at the gig in Southampton a couple of weeks ago. Secret Affair had a really solid set, great vocals from Mr Page. Although, I do think that Cairns goes a little over the top sometimes with the distortion on his guitar. 

      Squire were, naturally, outstanding. Meynell's guitaring and singing was on point, and it was great to see Mr Bicknell on bass. Had a chat with Meynell before the gig, really interesting! Bought a copy of the Squire version of 'Eight Miles High' (just as good as the Byrds original) directly from him and had it signed! Massive fan of Squire (as you can probably tell), and I publicly declare Anthony Meynell to be the most underrated songwriter in history, even more than Andy Partridge.

      So, has anyone else pre-ordered a copy of the expanded 'September Gurls' album? Top stuff.

    • Bought it at the gig last night from the man himself. £10. Very nice. 

    • Still got the original September Gurls. Love it!

    • Always loved Squire. Still good live, I suppose!?

    • I think its only the one original member now. But as he's the singer and guitarist thats fine. They were very good indeed and the sound from a 12 string Ric was immense. SA were also on top form.
